The perfect book for mums who want to share with their daughters and for daughters who can't always share with their mums.

By the time Dilvin Yasa left home, she'd already dated a string of bad men, fallen prey to countless fashion faux pas and suffered too many awkward sex talks with her parents. Determined that the next generation should learn from her experiences, she wrote a series of letters for her young daughter to read when she reaches the eve of adulthood - sharing the things that only a mother can teach her daughter.

Things My Daughter Needs to Know is both an accessible parenting book and an edgy self-help guide for young women needing reliable info on picking the right bra, avoiding full-moon parties, tackling the dating game and flying the nest.

Drawing on years of experience as a journalist for women's magazines and sharing - with admirable honesty - more than a few embarrassing stories from her own coming of age, Dilvin Yasa gives us frank, fearless and very funny advice on the sometimes painful, often joyful and always interesting journey into womanhood.
